- Vascular surgery
I grew up in West Yorkshire before studying medicine at Cambridge University. I then moved to the prestigious Royal Postgraduate Medical School in London to complete the Hammersmith Hospitals Basic Surgical Rotation. I then went to University College London to do a PhD before moving back to Yorkshire for Higher Surgical Training. Whilst in Yorkshire I was appointed the first National Institute of Health Research Clinical Lecturer in Vascular Surgery based at Leeds University.
My final year of training was spent as a Fellow in Adelaide Australia learning advanced endovascular and vascular techniques with a particular focus on diabetic foot disease and limb salvage. Mr Rashid has an interest in most areas of vascular surgery with a particular focus on complex bypass and angioplasty techniques. He is developing programmes focussed on minimally invasive surgical techniques such as endoscopic harvest and percutaneous aneurysm surgery.
Mr Rashid has developed surgical skills workshops for trainee surgeons and has lectured medical students. He is an invited speaker at regional and national conferences and symposia.
Areas of interest
Endovenous ablation of varicose veins; sclerotherapy of varicose veins; angioplasty; endovascular aneurysm repair; carotid endarterectomy; femoro-popliteal bypass; diabetic foot disease; carotid artery disease; Clarivein; leg swelling; diabetic foot ulcers; leg ulcers

My PhD was in Tissue Engineering and my Lectureship was in Diabetes and Vascular Disease. Current research looks at improving the healing of diabetic foot wounds and the role of progenitor or stem cells in this. I have also published and presented on aortic aneurysmal disease and varicose vein treatments with a focus on evaluating percutaneous aneurysm surgery and varicose vein treatment with a minimal amount of local anaesthetic only.
I enjoy leisure cycling and play football socially.
